The Great British Beach Clean is here again, now in the 26th year and once again forming part of the International Coastal Clean Up.

Please join us for a beach clean and survey along the shore of Loch Creran by the Creagan Inn on Sunday the 22nd of September from 12:30pm until around 3pm

We’ll be carrying out a survey of the 100m survey area (the high tide to the back of the beach) and a wider clean up too. You can take part as you wish, picking up, the survey or to help to concentrate on the wider area.

Equipment provided but please do bring your own protective gloves and a bucket if you have them.
Please dress for the weather and boots or sturdy shoes are of course recommended. The shore here is accessible by steps and a slipway.

Parking is at the Inn but please park considerately and share transport where possible. Thank you to Isobel, Duncan, Lindsay and team!

The Creagan Inn will be open for refreshments and cake from 10:30 and meals from 12. You are welcome to join us after lunch if you prefer.

All welcome including any accompanying four-legged chums (if owners are well-behaved!)

Remember your water bottle, suncream and midge cream...just in case (preferably the sunshine!)

Thank you and looking forward to seeing you.
